Default Orbiter does not start any more


I installed Orbiter yesterday for the first time, and it seemed to work OK (I run several scenarios).

Now, however, it doesn't start any more:
- I have already uninstalled, restarted and installed again
- Windows (10) has updated himself today ... could this be a reason?
- When I start it, I see an empty Launch console for less than a second (just the frame, no text), and then it disappear. Looking at the processes, it starts for a second werfault.exe
- There was no "orbiter.log" file anywhere in my disk. I created an empty one, and when I tryed to re-start the program it was filled with the following few lines:

**** Orbiter.log
000000.000: Build Aug 28 2016 [v.160828]
000000.000: Timer precision: 3.95061e-007 sec
000000.000: Found 0 joystick(s)
000000.000: Devices enumerated: 6
000000.000: Devices accepted: 5

Anybody can offer help on this issue? Any other log I can look at?

I would try installing the D3D9 client first before troubeshooting anything on a Win10 machine. Download it from https://www.tuttovola.org/index.php?...view;down=1104, unzip the archive in your Orbiter root folder, launch the Orbiter_ng.exe application (from now on, so you could delete the Orbiter.exe file). On the launchpad, go to Modules and activate the D3D9 client.
